12 Projects of Christmas - Project #4 Wood Bead Pendant Light
We incorporated wooden beads of various shapes and sizes to emphasize a Raw Brass Single Port Ceiling Pendant!
DIY Lighting Parts That You'll Need:
Cloth Covered Electrical Cord
Basic Ivory Socket
Flat Top Metal Socket Cover
Male Metal Barrel Cord Grip
Single Port Ceiling Canopy
Step 1: Drilling into the Beads and Bowl
The holes in the beads were a touch too small to fit our 18g Cloth Covered Electrical Cord through them, so we drilled the holes a bit larger as well as used the same drill for the wooden bowl.
Step 2: Staining
We stained the wooden beads with a Dark Walnut finish to provide a subtle contrast between the wood and the Raw Brass components.
Step 3: Wiring your Single Port Ceiling Pendant
If you need step by step instructions on how to wire a Single Port Ceiling Pendant, check out our video How To Wire a Basic Ivory Socket. Now, let's make it a BALLER Pendant!
Step 4: Threading the Bowl and Beads onto Cloth Covered Electrical Cord
We added a couple of crimps along the cord as stoppers to properly space each section of beads. The combination of stained and unstained beads provided great contrast for the final look. Send us photos of your DIY Holiday Projects! Stay tuned, Project #6 is coming up quick!
